Whirlpool Duet Washer - Problems with the Spin Cycle

Hi, I have Model: GHW9100LW1. I'm having problems with the Spin Cycle. It just started a few days ago. Sometimes I can run a load without any problems (usually the first load of the day), but then I start having issues. The Spin cycle sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. I hear a clackety sound (like when you're going up a roller coaster) and the drum stops spinning. I know the load isn't too large because I've tried all different sizes and it still does it even if there's just a few items in there. I end up pressing Pause and wait awhile (an hour or so) and restart it to let it finish its cycle. One load may take several hours because of the Pausing. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

    sounds like the bearing is going out and to replace the bearing you have to replace the whole tub how old is it?

    All my Washer issues have been solved. 1) I had to replace the belt; 2) I had to replace the Pulley because it wore out and couldn't tighten down anymore; 3) My washer no longer sounds like a roller coaster, or feels like an earthquake since I now use a product called Washer Magic which cleans out all the hard water residue in the hoses. I'm so happy now!
